Intel, chip manufacturer, and Open Ceremony, a fashion company, have collaborated to developed MICA. MICA (My Intelligent Communication Accessory) is a chic high tech bracelet that gives you quick access to numerous social communications. Some of these include, but are not limited to SMS messages, meeting alerts, and general notifications. How ingenious and practical is this invention? Wish I would’ve come up with something so great and as functional as MICA. MICA made its official debut on Sunday at Open Ceremony’s Spring/Summer 2015 show at New York Fashion Week. The MICA bracelet at first glance looks like a sleek modern metal cuff. It features semi-precious gems and two different water snakeskin designs, but you can receive your notifications on a sapphire glass touchscreen display. MICA bracelets will be priced at less than $1,000 and may be purchased at Barney’s New York during the 2014 holiday season.
Technology is definitely taking over the fashion world, one smartphone away from creating a smart house. I’m sure that already exist too now that I think of it, but this isn’t the first high tech fashionable device to come out. Many retailers are jumping on the bandwagon and coming up with fun fashionable accessories. Tory Burch designed a line of accessories that included the FitBit Flex, which tracks wearer’s calories, distance, and number of steps. And just recently Motorola came out with Moto360, which is the first circular Android Wear watch. The watch is made of steel and has a thin band. Some features include optical heart rate monitor that can track how many-targeted active minutes a day that you exercise, read messages, and voice commands.
